Le Bel Indifferent
Format: COMPACT DISC
Ensemble Virevolte Aurore Bucher
With this first-ever musical adaptation of Jean Cocteau's text; whose poetic power and energy have been fully preserved; the Virêvolte ensemble offers a radical new interpretation of the play. In this illustrated book-disc; which unfolds like an accordion to span more than four metres; the wanderings of a timeless heroine are told; sung and drawn. Like a Madame Loyale who is simultaneously a seer and a witch; she seizes the creative force of silence imposed by this "beautiful indifference"; projects her fantasies on the walls of a music-imaginary hall and transforms the lover’s expectation into a gigantic wild and risky fireworks display. She explores all the colours of her emotions; thanks to Jean-Marie Machado's inventiveness; in a succession of numbers ranging from opera arias to songs. Her story unfolds before your very eyes and is brought to life in music; taking you on a breathtaking journey through musical genres and aesthetics.
